I have information on a number of Hammonses (with some back and forth to Hammond, Hammonds, etc) who were in VA, NC, and TN around 1800. Some went to IL and MO. So if you'd give me a bit more info I can try to find something useful for you.
I have been able to trace my own Hammons ancestry back to John Hammons b. 26 Mar 1801 in VA and d. Sep 1866 in Daviess Co, MO. He was in Warren Co, TN around 1820 or so, then on to Montgomery Co, IL, and then to Daviess Co, MO by around 1850. Children born in TN, IL, and MO; wife Ruth Harville/ Harwell/ similar. Y chromosome analyses link him (via my DNA) to some other Hammonses in VA, NC, and TN around the same time, but I don't know how. If you have any insights, that would be helpful.
Please let me know how I might help you. And thanks.
